Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ricki Lake who has revealed that her ex-husband, Christian Evans, has died after struggling with his bi-polar disorder.
Lake shared the news in an emotional Instagram and Facebook post on Tuesday.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share that my beloved soulmate, Christian Evans has passed. The world didn’t understand this man, but I did,” she wrote. “He succumbed to his life long struggle with bipolar disorder. For anyone who has ever lost a family member or friend to mental illness, my heart goes out to you. “
“I am a greater person for having known him and spent the past 6 and a half years of my life with him. He was a man of love and what mends my broken heart today is knowing that he is finally at peace and his spirit is free. Rest in peace, my love,” she added.
Lake and Evans were married for 2 1/2 years before she filed for divorce back in 2015. He was her second marriage.
